Happy Monday!  I’m so sorry for the unexpected radio silence last week.  The kiddos were off from school for Easter break so I took them down to Washington DC for a few days for some sightseeing and to visit family.  We had beautiful weather (with the exception of one chilly day), enjoyed some yummy meals, and stayed in a great location so I’m currently working on my “DC with kid”s travel guide.  Stay tuned!

In the meantime, can we talk about about these cropped frayed jeans for under $35?  I love the high waist, the trendy frayed hem, and of course the affordable price tag.  I recently scooped up a number of items from Target that I cannot wait to debut this spring!  I’m in love with their Cat and Jack collection for kids (which I’ve realized that their size 14 girls is equivalent to a size 2 women’s so I scored several pieces) and I’m still coveting pretty much everything from the Who What Wear line.  I especially recommend this classic striped tee, this pretty bell sleeve top, these flattering cropped flare pants, and this shrunken blazer.  And last but not least, I snagged this scallop trim top from the Victoria Beckham collection for under $30.  It’s so versatile and timeless so I’m sure it’ll get a ton of mileage.  Have you found any amazing pieces at Target?  If so, do tell!  I love a good Target haul!  I hope your week is off to a productive start!

Kale Salad with Feta and Cranberries

Lately, our family has been on a kale Caesar salad kick because it’s the only way I can get my kids to eat kale (aside from this smoothie).  I try to make it as healthy as possible with homemade croutons, a reduced fat dressing, and shaved parmesan (I mean, cheese has calcium so it can’t(…)
